Mayor of Ulaanbaatar D.Sumiyabazar and Rio Tinto Mongolia Executive Director Kh.Amarjargal signed a bilateral agreement within the landscaping project of the National Amusement Park.

The Ulaanbaatar Mayor’s Office, National Amusement Park LLC and Rio Tinto Mongolia signed a tripartite memorandum of understanding on cooperation on October 6 in order to carry out a landscaping project at the National Amusement Park.

The responsibilities of the capital city and Rio Tinto Mongolia are specifically reflected in the agreement. The city has committed to resolving difficulties with energy, electrical supply, infrastructure, fences and the vicinity’s businesses while adhering to existing legislation in addition to refraining from interfering with the practice of landscaping. In order to provide a sustainable green structure where people can unwind and spend their free time in a cozy and healthy environment, Rio Tinto Mongolia has agreed to finance 100 percent of the landscaping work. The National Amusement Park’s landscaping is anticipated to be finished in July 2023.

An important aspect of the agreement was the establishment of parks at two locations in ger areas. In this regard, the mayor said, “The agreement provides for the development of parks in two major districts of the capital with the largest population in addition to the landscaping of the National Amusement Park. In Bayanzurkh and Songinokhairkhan districts, a park with a bike and pedestrian route, landscaping and green facilities will be constructed. The city will also offer suggestions for landscaping, including the planting of trees and plants that will improve the city’s appearance and maintain ecological balance.”

The location of the park to be built in Bayanzurkh and Songinokhairkhan districts is yet to be decided but the construction work is expected to be finished by 2023 once a feasibility study is performed and tenders are made public.
